Have you heard of Saint Germain Paris makeup yet? They are an affordable range of cosmetics with a Parisian flair. Their products include items for the face, nails and eyes and they are cruelty free, vegan and gluten free.
Their line includes eyeshadow duos that come in seven different shades. They also have twenty-two shades of nail polish that come in a variety of finishes and shades.
Eyeshadow Duo in Purple Blue/Night Blue, Nail Polish in Purple Silver
Purple Silver is a pale lavender frost. Oh how I wish this wasn’t frosty. The formula of the polish isn’t too thick or too thin, but unfortunately because of the frosty finish, it’s pretty streaky. Plus it just looks dated to me. Frosty nail polish is one thing I would happily leave in the 80’s. The color itself is nice, but the finish killed it. This was two coats.
Eyeshadow Duo in Purple Blue/Night Blue (over primer)
Purple Blue/Night Blue features a pale cool lavender shimmer on one side and a deep smoky blue/purple on the other. The pale lavender shade barely showed up when I swatched it without a primer. With a primer it’s still very pale. The Night Blue shade is nicer and more pigmented. I like the greyed out look of it.
The texture of the shadow is good. Not the softest shadows ever, but certainly not chalky or gritty feeling. I just wish they had a bit more pigmentation without having to work so hard at getting it.
Overall: I don’t like to judge an entire brand from just seeing two products, but I don’t feel like either of these were that great. I think if the nail polish had not been a streaky frost it would have been nicer. The eyeshadow only had one color that was decently pigmented and that was after many swipes of it. Then again the pricing for these isn’t expensive either!
